... but it appears that the word "Aharietiam" is derived as [from]:

Quote

Although the prophecy refers to Gog as an enemy in some future, it is not clear if the confrontation is meant to occur in a final "end of days" since the Hebrew term aḥarit ha-yamim (Hebrew: אחרית הימים) may merely mean "latter days", and is open to interpretation. 

[~Wikipedia article on "Gog and Magog"]

It's not really a well-known fact I think, so it's probably for the better you pointed it out! He did confirm it:

Do you use Hebrew words?

Brandon Sanderson

The name Adonalsium is derived from a Hebrew name for God, Adonai and Aharietiam was derived from the Hebrew/Jewish term for the end of days acharit hayamim or אחרית הימים

I believe it's been confirmed that the unmade are all named for ancient middle eastern gods. I've figured out 7:

Ashertmarn= Asherah

Ba-Ado-Mishram= ?

Chemoarish= Chemosh

Dai-Gonarthis= Dagon

Moelach= Moloch

Nergaoul= Nergal

Re-Shephir= Resheph

Sja-Anat= Anat

Yelig-Nar= ?

And some of these, notably Asherah and Moloch, appear in the Torah.

Could Ba-Ado-Mishram be from Ba'al? Also, why did I only just notice that the more intelligent an Unmade is, the more hyphens they get?

Because the proper use of a hyphen is indicative of intelligence.

Thank You? (For the proper term, at least) Where are they?

Sanderson would be changing the gender if so which he consistently has not if I remember correctly.

I hadn't thought of that. I looked it up and the feminine form of the title is Ba'alah. That seems very similar to me, but there could be something else.

Here you go:

“And you shall not give any of your offspring to pass through for Molech. And you shall not profane the Name of your G‑d. I am the L‑rd.” 

Leviticus 18:21. "וּמִזַּרְעֲךָ֥ לֹֽא־תִתֵּ֖ן לְהַֽעֲבִ֣יר לַמֹּ֑לֶךְ וְלֹ֧א תְחַלֵּ֛ל אֶת־שֵׁ֥ם אֱלֹהֶ֖יךָ אֲנִ֥י יְהוָֹֽה"

"Thou shalt not plant thee an Asherah of any kind of tree beside the altar of the LORD thy God, which thou shalt make thee."

 Deuteronomy 16:21."לֹא-תִטַּע לְךָ אֲשֵׁרָה, כָּל-עֵץ:  אֵצֶל, מִזְבַּח יְהוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ--אֲשֶׁר תַּעֲשֶׂה-לָּךְ."

Chemosh is mentioned, too, in... *pulls out her copy of Bamidbar* Numbers 21:29.  Well, it says 'Kemosh', but I think it's the same thing.

IIRC Chemosh comes up in the Prophets, too, but I have to go now. Maybe I'll look it up later.
